    This probably isn't the best place to ask

    but I'm desperate for advice. So first off I'm going to explain a few things. I'm currently a freshman in College and on the quarter system, which means instead of having two long semesters there are 3 quarters and they are each 10 weeks long which means a quarter goes by...

    The people in my school are terrible people.

    They act like their your friend over a text message and when you get to school they want nothing to do with you. They play with your emotions. They are bad examples. I have truly never met anyone like these people. I moved to the school two years ago. They don't let you be you...
